   If you've ever been to a convention or festival with genre themes, you've probably seen a lot of people wearing really elaborate costumes, swaggering around in-character, having spent a lot of time and/or money putting together their look. You've probably also seen goths punks, pagans with pentacles, maybe even kinky after-hours playmates, actual trans people gender-bending cosplays, or otherkin and real vampires.
